Members sought for Police Consultative Forum 23 February 2007

PEOPLE living in all regions of the Isle of Man are being invited to serve on the Police Consultative Forum.

This body, established by the Department of Home Affairs, is charged with obtaining residents’ views about policing on the Isle of Man, fostering good relations between the police and public and raising local issues for discussion and action.

Forum members – who are appointed by the Council of Ministers – serve for five years, meeting, on average, once every two months plus undertaking public consultations as required.

The period of appointment for the present nine members is due to expire on February 28 and the Department will recommend that the new members shall be appointed to serve five years until April 2012.

Home Affairs Minister Martyn Quayle said:

‘Members of the Police Consultative Forum play a crucial role in liaising between the police and the Isle of Man community. The present members – some of whom have served since it was established in 1998 – have assisted the Department enormously in terms of providing feedback about policing matters. I urge anyone who has an interest in serving on the Forum to contact the Department.’

Anyone interested in being appointed to the Police Consultative Forum has until Friday March 16 to write to the Department at 88 Woodbourne Road, Douglas, IM2 3AP or by emailing

More details about the Forum’s work, including recent reports, can be found on the DHA website Police Consultative Forum page.
